​Newcastle considering ex-Roma boss Fonseca for two reasons

Former Roma boss Paulo Fonseca is emerging as a serious option for Newcastle United.

The Magpies, who are now owned by a Saudi Arabia-backed consortium, announced the departure of former manager Steve Bruce this week.

According to The Sun, there are two significant reasons why 48-year-old Fonseca is jumping to the top of Newcastle's wanted list for a new coach.

Fonseca has an attacking style of play, which appeals to the club's new owners and the fans.

He is also a proven winner, having won trophies at Shakhtar Donetsk, which means he has the experience to handle the pressures of the Premier League.
